Annual Report 




In memory of David "Rabbitt" Haskell 

This year, we dedicate the town report to the memory of David "Rabbitt" Haskell. Rabbitt' s 
service to the Town of Williamsburg began during his years at Williamsburg High School when 
he served as a volunteer fireman and on the muster team. Later, he worked for the late Harry 
Warner on the Highway Department, while in his teens. Rabbitt graduated in 1968 and served 
his country in the Marine Corp during the Vietnam War where he saw active duty. He worked 
closely with George Childs to plan and execute Williamsburg's 225 th anniversary celebration, 
The Fire Department's 1 50 anniversary, the Jaws of Life fund drive in 2000 and Roger Bisbee's 
retirement dinner. At the time of his death, Rabbitt was on both the Water and Sewer 
Commission and the Board of Selectmen where he served two terms. Among his 
accomplishments as Selectman, he spent countless hours with Police Chief John Cotton to insure 
that the town had adequate police coverage during a difficult time and helped make the Police 
Department transition move smoothly. During his many years as a rural mail carrier, he kept a 
close watch on the people he served and the town he loved, paying special attention to senior 
shut-ins. Rabbitt spearheaded the upgrade of the veterans' memorial and, as a tribute to his 
memory, many of his loyal friends have stepped forward to help make his dream become a 
reality. 

Winston Churchill said: "We make a life by what we give" 

While Rabbitt was making his life, he enriched ours. So long Rab - we'll miss you!

Annual 2006 Report of the Town Clerk 



It was a year of change, some small and seamless, others less so for the Town Clerk's Office. 

In November 2005 we voted to change our General Bylaws affecting the Annual Town Meeting and 
Town Elections. Therefore, May 1, 2006 was the first year that Annual elections were held with elected 
officials taking office the first of July. Per the vote of Town Meeting and approval of the Attorney 
General our Annual Town Meeting was held the first Monday in June for the first time. There was 
discussion at the State level and throughout many Western Massachusetts towns throughout the summer 
about the fact we had received Attorney General approval to move Town Meeting while other towns had 
been subsequently denied approval. Good news came in the fall that The Attorney General would not be 
revoking our approval and that State Officials were working to change the Massachusetts General Laws 
to allow other towns to follow suit. The benefit of moving the date of Town meeting gives the Finance 
Committee a more accurate and complete financial picture from the State before bringing the town budget 
before the voters. 

We had a fairly busy election year with the added state elections. The Voter registrars assisted in 
7-voter registration days and in the collection of many, many petitions and nomination papers. In addition 
Voter Registrar, Diane O' Sullivan came in many additional days and evenings to help me certify all those 
petitions and nomination papers getting them done in accordance with state deadlines. 

At our November special town meeting we began checking in and supplying voters with a voting card at 
town meetings. The process went smoothly, was helpful to the moderator in counting votes and was well 
accepted by the voters in attendance. We will continue this process for the Caucus and future meetings. 

The following Town Meetings and Elections were held in Williamsburg from January 2006 to December 
2006. 

Annual Caucus - Monday, March 6, 2006 
Special Town Meeting - Monday April 10, 2006 
Annual Election - Monday, May 1, 2006 

Annual Town Meeting - Monday, June 5, 2006 (continued to June 19, 2006) 

Special Election - Monday, July 24, 2006 

September Primary Election - Tuesday, September 19, 2006 

November State Election - Tuesday, November 7, 2006 

November Special Town Meeting - Thursday, November 9, 2006 

As of December 31, 2006 mere were 1,763 registered voters. The breakdown of registered voters: 

622 active registered Democrats 
163 active registered Republicans 

957 active registered Unenrolled (formerly called Independent) 
16 registered Green-Rainbow 
4 registered Libertarian 
1 registered Green Party USA 

Thank you to the Registrar of Voters - Diane O' Sullivan, Linda Rowley and Jean York, the Wardens - 
Bess Lojko, Winona Lockwood and Kathleen Luce and the dedicated and efficient election workers - Dot 
Lucey, Janet Nurczyk, Pat Casterline, Shelia Dufresne, Bernadine Magdalenski, Donald Owens, John 
Pohanka, Mary Ann Ciuffreda, Claudia Downey, Kathy Davidheiser, and Lucille Clark. Special 
appreciation to my checkers at the Town Meetings - Diane O' Sullivan and Maureen Mathers.

As always, I appreciate the support and flexibility of the School Administration and hard work of head 
custodian, Mike O'Brien in the setup for all our town events. 

Many thanks to our dedicated Constables, John Svoboda, Paul Sanderson, Jeffrey Cranston, and Wilbur 
Loomis, for all their efforts and support of the election process. 

As always, dog licenses were issued, records were updated, filings made, in addition to providing 
residents and families with copies of vital records and genealogy searches. In this regard, Ralmon Black 
has provided my office with several excel spreadsheets. One on roads and the other a list of vital records 
for the last 102 years both of which enables me to do a quick search. It is extremely helpful to have these 
and as always I appreciate his and the Historical Commissions' work in making records so easily 
available to the public. 

The following numbers and licenses were recorded as of December 31, 2006: 
The total population - 2,412 
Residents 1 8 and over - 2,240 

The Dog Officers and Town Clerk licensed 496 dogs (including kennel licenses). 
Fishing and Hunting Licenses were issued from the Town Clerks office as listed below: 

39 Sporting and Hunting Licenses 

2 1 Fishing Licenses 

It is with great joy that The Town of Williamsburg recorded 21 births. May each of those children and 
their families be blessed with good health and happiness. 

It is always exciting to see couples take the step of committing to one another through marriage. The 
Town of Williamsburg issued and recorded 9 Marriages. Wishing them many joyous moments and 
strength through the tougher times. 

It is always with great sadness that I hear of and record a death from our community. It was a particularly 
difficult this year as we felt the loss of two residents, Mr. Edward Crotty and Mr. David "Rabbht" 
Haskell, not only at the community level but in the Town Government as well. 

Over the years, Ed successfully served the Town in the official capacities of Williamsburg Fire Fighter, 
Deputy Chief of Police and Constable. Ed cared deeply for the town and in addition to his many official 
capacities; his giving presence was felt throughout the Town. He will be forever missed not only by those 
that loved him the most, his immediate family, but also by his extended family here at the Town Offices. 

Rabbitt served his Country and the Town with strength, passion and dedication. He was a Williamsburg 
Fire Fighter, Water and Sewer Commissioner, member of the Conservation Commission and the Board of 
Selectmen - he left his mark in position he held. He will never be forgotten. 

The Town of Williamsburg recorded 15 deaths in the year 2006. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Charlene L. Nardi

Annual Report of the Board of Assessors 



The Board of Assessors reports for 2006 that every effort has been made to keep town records as 
current and accurate as possible. Residents with questions or concerns regarding their property 
values are encouraged to contact the Board. This year, changes in residential home prices 
throughout the area required revaluation adjustments by the town to meet state law requirements. 
The Board of Assessors also reviewed property changes generated by site visits, building 
permits, current sales and applications for abatement. As residents saw first hand the market 
trends of property sales, the Board of Assessors answered a number of questions from people 
making changes to their property and those contemplating a change in the future. 

This year also saw special legislation passed to refund taxpayer's overpayment in Fy2003. 
Everyone's patience was tested as we waited for the vote and refunds were issued in as timely a 
manner as possible. 

The Board of Assessors began the process of transferring from paper to electronic mapping for 
all properties in town. This is a joint project with the planning board and will be ongoing in 
2007. The initial phase involved scanning the existing maps and piecing them together. Future 
phases involve cleaning up discrepancies on overlapping maps to accurately depict property 
boundaries. It is hoped that the town map will become a base map that can be used by multiple 
departments, committees and groups to share information in a readily compatible format. 

After 34 years of dedicated and loyal service, Henry Warner retired from the Board of Assessors. 
His knowledge of the town and involvement with the board will be missed. 

Any resident with questions is urged to contact the Board of Assessors by phone (268-8403) or 
in person at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Denise L. Banister

There is still some confusion regarding what type of projects require a building permit. Remember that 
reroofing requires a building permit. A permit is also required for replacement doors and windows, 
new siding, installation of wood or pellet stoves, and most exterior or interior renovation work. The 
State Building Code makes exception for the permit requirement only for "normal repairs". If in doubt, 
please call before beginning your project. 

My thanks again to Tara Ussailis, my administrative assistant, for keeping up with the pace and keeping 
everything in order. 

Our office is located at the Davenport School Building, 422 Main Road in Chesterfield, and is open 
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings to serve residents of all member towns. Office hours are 
also held Wednesday evenings at 7:30 in the Huntington Town Offices. Residents may phone anytime 
at (413) 296-0127. 

Respectfully submitted, 




Paul Tacy

Annual Report of the Williamsburg Brassworks ReUse Committee 



This appointed committee oversees the use of funds in three categories; a small business 
loan revolving fund, a fund for recreational uses, and a fund to assist with economic 
development and housing. 

The committee is made up of representatives from three boards; the select board, the 
planning board, and the finance committee. 

The members for 2006 were Jeffrey Ciuffreda from the select board, Martin Mahoney 
from the planning board, and Peter Mahieu from the finance committee. Peter Mahieu is 
the Chairman of the Brassworks Committee. 

This board met monthly throughout the year, on the second Tuesday of each month, at 
5:00 PM in the Town Offices. 

No new small business loans were made, and the one outstanding small business loan 
was paid in full. The committee discussed new ways to make the availability of these 
funds known to businesses and while several applications were taken out, none were 
returned as official requests. 

A contribution was made from the recreation fund to help the Williamsburg PTO in their 
efforts to replace the swing sets and other playground equipment at the James school. 

The outstanding loan made to the HCDC that assisted them in making affordable 
apartments available is current. 

The committee continues to explore ways of communicating with potential applicants for 
these funds and encourages any small business or person thinking about starting a 
business, to ask for an application. 



72 



ANNUAL REPORT OF THE CAPITAL PLANNING COMMITTEE 



The charge of the Capital Planning Committee is to help the town plan for anticipated capital expenditures 
and their financing. The Committee is to be composed of six members; three at large members appointed 
by the Board of Selectmen, two members of the Finance Committee, appointed by the Finance Committee 
and the Town Treasurer, serving as an ex-officio member. 

The current members are Robert Buchele, Kit Smith, William Sayre, Lloyd Warriner and Peter Mahieu. 
We have one vacancy. 

Each year the committee solicits capital expenditure requests for the next fiscal year and anticipated 
requests for the next five years from all town departments. (Capital expenditures include all equipment or 
projects that cost at least $10,000 and have a useful life of at least five years.) It then compiles and 
prioritizes these requests and forwards them to the Finance Committee along with its funding 
recommendations. 

The Committee forwarded the following capital expenditure and debt service projections for the Town of 
Williamsburg to the Finance Committee in April 2006 (see FY2007 spreadsheet on the next page.) 

William Sayre 
Chairman

Annual Report of the Conservation Commission 

The Williamsburg Conservation Commission comprises James Wilson, Chairperson, Tom 
Hodgkins, Phil Skwira, Wilbur Loomis and Rob Stinson, Acting Secretary. 

In 2006, The Conservation Commission held numerous site visits and hearings prior to acting on 
submittals of Requests for Deterrnination, Notices of Intent, and Certificates of Completion. The 
Commission files of these proceedings are available for review upon request. The decisions of 
the Commission are also forwarded to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental 
Protection. 

Commission members attended workshops and seminars during the year to further their 
knowledge of regulatory changes and best practices related to the protection of the town's 
wetlands and rivers. 

The Commission's major responsibility is the administration of the Massachusetts Wetlands 
Protection Act (G.L. Ch. 131 §40) and the Rivers Protection Act (Ch. 268, Acts of 1996). 
Pursuant to that responsibility, the Commission reviews the designs and scope of activities 
within resource areas and their respective buffer zones, to ensure plans compliance with federal 
and state laws. The Town of Williamsburg does not have its own conservation by-law and 
adheres to the standards of the commonwealth. 

If any town resident is planning any activity within 100 feet of a wetland or within 200 feet of a 
wetland or within 200 feet of a perennial stream or river, it is jurisdictional under the Wetlands 
Protection Act and those residents must contact the Conservation Commission before 
undertaking any work in those areas. 

The Conservation Commission meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month. 
Questions for the Commission can be answered by commission members, or the commission 
secretary, Rob Stinson, or by leaving a message at 268-8416.

2006 Annual Report of the Williamsburg Council On Aging & Regional Senior 

Center 

A Public Hearing was held February 2 nd about the proposed regional senior center. About 
50 people attended the hearing at which representatives of Hilltown Community 
Development Corporation presented information and answered questions. At a very well 
attended meeting on February 16 th , the Select Board voted to proceed with the HCDC 
application to move forward with more planning for a senior center. This means that 
voters will have the opportunity to vote on this issue. HCDC's application for more 
funding was approved, however, new federal regulations have delayed the beginning of 
this next planning phase. 

The COA was represented at Emergency Dispensing Site committee meetings. Both Fran 
Goebel and Mary Wheelan have been trained and certified by FEMA in two courses: 
Introduction to Incident Command System and National Incident Management System 
(NIMS) an Introduction. They were required to take this training along with other town 
employees. It is important to let the Council On Aging know if you or a 
significant other is homebound so that, in the event of an emergency, we 
would be able to make sure emergency personnel know to make special 
arrangements for you. You cannot assume other social service agencies will give us 
this information because of concerns about confidentiality. So please keep us informed. 
People under 60 who are homebound are welcome to contact us as well with this 
information. 

The COA and the Hilltown Alliance of Musicians and Songwriters, Inc. co-sponsored the 
Jamboree held at the Ann T. Dunphy School on May 20 th with funding provided by 
Highland Valley Elder Services. It was attended by over 100 people and received very 
good media coverage. More importantly, it was an event that not only entertained a lot 
of elders and people of all ages but also included elders among the entertainers. In fact, 
The Old Folks at Home (Smitty and Mae Smith) received an award for outstanding 
achievement in bringing the joy of music to their community. Information tables were 
set up around the gym, too, so people could take brochures and other literature about 
resources for elders and their caregivers. Representatives of some agencies were also 
present to answer questions. 

Another musical event held on December 14 th was also well received. The Ann T. 
Dunphy School Chorus performed for elders in the Town Offices Auditorium. They sang 
multi-cultural holiday songs. Many proud parents attended the event as well. Other 
special events included: cookouts, the pancake breakfast, and the Volunteer Recognition 
dinner held in October at the Williamsburg Congregational Church. 

While Williamsburg is currently in fairly good shape regarding provision of transportation 
to elders in town, the fact is that some other hilltowns have, experienced some 
significant problems. Repetitive transportation for things like dialysis and adult day 
health can quickly exhaust resources. The Williamsburg COA has been working closely 
with other members of the Hilltown Consortium of Councils On Aging and the Hilltown 



76 



Elder Network to make the most out of existing resources. And, Executive Director, Mary 
Wheelan, has been to meetings of the Independent Transportation Network (a national 
organization) to learn about this potential resource being developed here in Western 
Massachusetts as a regional chapter. As the number of elders in need of transportation 
grows rapidly over the next couple of decades we will need to have enough options in 
place to meet the increasing demand. 

The Williamsburg COA began collecting used cell phones in 2006. The Hampshire County 
Sheriff's Office arranges for the phones to be adapted for emergency use only. The 
phones are then given to Williamsburg elders who are instructed in their use. Since they 
are for emergency use only there is no cost for service and the donated phones are, of 
course, free of charge. Anyone who would like a phone can contact Fran at 268-8407. 
To donate a used cell phone you can either bring it to the COA office or put it in the 
receptacle set aside for that purpose at the Transfer Station. 

Services and activities provided by or at the Council On Aging during 2006 included: 
brown bag; foot care; blood pressure screenings; assistive equipment loans; hearing 
screenings; flu shot clinic; SHINE volunteer (health insurance counseling); AARP Tax 
Preparation; transportation; information and referrals; recreational activities; speakers; 
classes (computer, tai chi, line dancing, quilting, etc.); workshops; lunches at meal site 
on Wednesdays and Thursdays; assistance with food stamp, fuels assistance and other 
applications; housing information; and outreach. Also four quarterly issues of Mature 
Matters were mailed town-wide. In between each of those issues a smaller publication 
called Mini-Matters was sent out to elders. Thanks to the support of advertisers we are 
able to afford more frequent communication than we could in past years. And, thanks to 
the work of dedicated volunteers as well as paid staff we are able to provide all the 
services listed above. To learn more about how you can help out call Fran Goebel, 
Program Director, at 268-8407. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mary Wheelan 
Executive Director 



Annual Report 2006 
Williamsburg School Department 



School Council: Efforts this year included serving as the Title I Parent Advisory Committee, Review 
Committee for District Wellness Protocols, Advisory work to the Special Education Parent Advisory 
Committee, and finally the revision of the School Improvement Plan. Membership included; Kate 
Dollard, Parent (2nd Year of 3 year term), Lorrie Cote, Parent (3rd Year of 3 year term), Lisa Peloquin, 
Teacher (2nd Year of 2 year term), Karen Schweitzer, Teacher (2nd Year of 2 Year term), David Sprague, 
Adjustment Councilor (2nd Year of 2 year term), Jeff Gelbard, School Committee Liaison (Appointed by 
the school Committee 1 year term), Vacancy - Community Member, Alfred Venne Principal 

Parent/Community School Involvement 

Science Night/Spaghetti Dinner: On March 24 Over 250 people were seated for dinner as grade 6 
students worked as Servers. Science demonstrations and many hands on activities provided for focused 
science learning through out the event. David Sprague the school adjustment counselor was joined by a 
number of student drummers to add an entertainment element to the evening. Finally 12 lucky people 
walked away with theme baskets created by the PTO. The funds raised will help to support efforts to 
improve the outdoor school spaces used by the students. 

Playground update - Under the able leadership of Donna Gingras, the PTO completed its' final phase of 
a 3 year fundraising effort for the purpose of updating some aspects of our school playground equipment. 
During the month of October the PTO received a check in the amount of $5000 from Florence Savings 
Bank, $2000 from the Brassworks reuse committee. In all the PTO is raised nearly $30,000. The PTO 
playground subcommittee under the direction of parents Paul Wetzel and Julie Elias successfully installed 
the major portion of the highly anticipated playground update at the Helen E. James School Playground. 
In all about 50 - 60 people participated in the installation process that included everything from digging 
holes, putting equipment together to the final spreading of over lOOyards of bark mulch. The Playground 
unofficially opened at 1 :30 PM Weds. Nov. 22. Formal dedications will occur at a later time. 

The Williamsburg Cultural Arts Committee (CAC) coordinated the offering of a 4-session workshop 
for students during the month of January 2006. The event sponsored by CAC volunteer helped raise over 
$1,400. The funds raised will be used to help sponsor the CAC sponsored "Arts Adventure Day". The 
workshops include "Digital Photo Fun", "Jump Up/Jump Down", "Drama Time" and Recycled Arts". 
Over 40 children participated in this workshop series. Most significant is the fact that the CAC volunteers 
create Arts events that in turn help sponsor more significant arts events for the school population. The 
CAC instructors for this event were, Cynthia Porier, Jeff Bliss, Victoria Loud and Natalie Sowell. The 
CAC successfully sponsored the second annual Arts Adventure Day on Monday, March 13 th . The day 
welcomed artists from our own parent community, the local college community and the community at 
large to who shared their special talents with our students. Each class experienced three different art 
forms (dance, theatre, visual art, music) throughout the morning, culminating in a special performance for 
the Dunphy School students by "5-Alone," an acappella group from PVPA. 

James School Mural Project: For three years Fertile Ground has raised funds for a collaborative 
partnership with Nuestras Raices, a community development organization in Holyoke, in which youth 
leaders, trained in gardening and farming, share their knowledge of agriculture and Puerto Rico with 
James School children and families during garden work days. They are paid for their work with James 
School children, which also includes corresponding with Kindergarten children in Spanish as pen pals, 
sharing recipes, and hosting a field trip to the Nuestras Raices community center, gardens, urban farm, 
organic bakery, and traditional Puerto Rican Cafe in Holyoke. These youth helped build the garden and 
sprinkler system at the James School.

On Saturday March 25 there was an enormous turn out of kids, parents and teachers mat managed to draw 
the mural image on large panels in record time, while having fun together. Many cooked delicious healthy 
food for the potluck. In addition neighboring businesses made contributions including The Williamsburg 
Market for juice, Evolution (in Florence) for vegetarian chili, Rugg Lumber, for the panel boards and 
primer. This project is made possible with funds from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund, 
The Haymarket People's Fund, Art Angels, and the Community Foundation of Western MA. 

The James School children and their teachers developed the mural through drawings and collage. It was 
designed and laid out by the Nuestras Raices youth, and painted on panels in art class during the spring by 
the K - 3rd graders using kid friendly paint. The mural panels were mounted on the empty wall space 
near the rear exit of the James School building during the annual Nuestras Raices community garden day 
in late May. 



Facility Updates 

Lighting update - The energy audit was completed over the summer. Prism Consulting successfully 
arranged the updating of 75 lighting fixtures over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. The update included 
the Anne T. Dunphy School gymnasium, the main hallways, the east side classrooms and bathrooms. A 
number of lights and all the exits signs were updated at the Helen E. James Building. 

Reserve Fund Grant: The district was notified that $19,000 was allocated to the Williamsburg School 
District as part "Pot Hole" grant funds. Facility work completed with these emergency funds included; 
Re-installation of the warped PK floor, the replacement of all James School lead-bearing drinking 
fountains, and the disconnection of all classroom drinking water feeds of the Anne T. Dunphy School 
installations of non-lead bearing water feeds to two new fountains and the kitchen. 

Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) conducted a school building Need Survey in 
Williamsburg during the first week of December 2005 as part of a statewide data collection process. Each 
school building was assessed is now part of the State baseline of school facility information. The MSBA 
is beginning to accept applications for major facility upgrade July 1, 2007. The process begins with a 
"Statement of Interest" The town Selectboard and School Committee submitted a joint "Statement of 
Interest" to the MSBA in December 2006.

Program Events 

School Musical: Friday April 7, 2006 Martha Cycz directed a wonderful school musical "Dance to the 
Beat" - A World of Rhythms and Dances. 14 musical performances that included every student from 
every class demonstrated some of the many rhythms and dances that make up today's music. The 
continents of Europe, South America, Africa, Southeast Asia and North America were represented during 
the show. Music came to life through drumming, dance, violin, guitar, piano, dulcimer, and most certainly 
voice. All had many wonderful performances. 

Simple Machines Day: Monday April 10, 2006. Parents Sue Froehlich and Paul Wetzel working with 
grade 1, 2 and 4 teachers pulled together a day of hands on science. Pulleys, inclined planes, 
wheelbarrows and rollers made heavy work simple through simple machines. All grade 1, 2 and 4 
students were engaged for over 2 hours in real life demonstrations of simple machines. It is no 
coincidence that this aspect of physics and engineering is part of both the grade 1-2 and grade 4-science 
curriculum. 

Bonnie's Program: Enrollment is up this year over last with daily attendance averaging around 10 
students. In all over 20 different children are served. In addition the childcare component of the program 
Kung Fu is being offered on Tuesday afternoons in the Gymnasium. Bonnie's program is projecting daily 
attendance during parent teacher conference 1/2 days of nearly 20 children.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT - 2006 



The schools in the Hampshire Regional School District have had another exciting and productive year. Teachers 
and staff have worked hard to provide quality instructional and extra-curricular programs for our students, 
while maintaining safe, positive and productive learning environments within our schools. The following report 
will highlight some of the programs, events, measurements and activities undertaken to help our young people 
learn and prepare to meet the challenges of our world today. 

Annually, administrators identify district goals to provide direction for curricular work and professional 
development. The 2006-2007 District Goals are: 

Goal #1: Develop and implement district-wide (PreK-12) curriculum (content, instruction and assessment) and a 

supportive process to continually improve student performance. 
Goal #2: Promote professional development as a means of improving instruction and student achievement, 

including content, instruction, assessment, mentoring and coaching. 
Goal #3: Support the use of technology, differentiated instruction, diversity and community service as 

Instructional strategies to reach all learners. 
Goal #4: Facilitate ongoing and open communications with parents and our communities. 

In the fall of 2006, the district launched Phase I of our new math program. The purpose of the math program is 
to provide students with similar math learning opportunities so that when they arrive at Hampshire Regional, 
they have a common set of math skills and understandings. The new math materials help align instruction with 
state standards for math. 

Central Office saw several staff changes. Stuart Singer, our Special Education Administrator left to take a 
position in business. Laurie Bell Farkas was hired as his replacement. Julie Culhane, our Director of Early 
Childhood Programs, retired after over thirty years of service to the districts. Through a re-organization 
process, we have re-assigned the duties of this position and re-instituted the Director of Curriculum position. 
We hope to have this individual in place for fall 2007. Central office administrative assistant Harriet Kelley left 
us to take a similar position in another district. Taffy Bassett-Fox is our new administrative assistant. 



NEW HINGHAM REGIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 

Several programs continue to prosper at New Hlngham Regional Elementary School, each one is connected to 
the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks as well as school and district goals. These programs include Safety 
and Fire Education (SAFE), conducted by Chief Sue Labrie and her colleagues from both the Goshen and 
Chesterfield Fire Departments. Students particularly enjoyed the blindfold experience, a simulation for 
evacuating a smoke-filled building. Sue Wallace once again trained another group of students in Peer Mediation 
and Conflict Resolution. Nurse Brown conducted the "Jump Up and Go" Program and the Ropes Course at Camp 
Howe in the spring. Students in grades four, five and six built confidence and self-esteem by completing the 
requirements in each program while learning cooperation skills. The third graders toured Chesterfield and 
Goshen and went on a field trip to Sturbridge Village as part of their history program. Mr. Shaw, Mr. Bisbee and 
Mr. Thomas served as the historians and accompanied the students as their toured our towns. They told the 
students stories and pointing out areas of Interest. Students In grades one and two visited the Berkshire 
Museum and learned about night animals, an area of focus for grade two. The kindergarten class visited the 
Chesterfield Post Office and the D.A.R. Most of the programs required buses, which were paid for by our very 
active and supportive PTO. We are very grateful to the many parents who volunteer their time and fundraise to 
so that our students can enjoy their extra curricular learning experiences. 

Several school-wide activities were held throughout the school year. Each month, a Community Celebration 
highlighted one grade level. Mrs. Renauld and Mrs. Neal work with the students as they prepare their songs, 
dance, Instrumental pieces or poetry readings, which were then shared with the whole school. The "Caribbean 
Adventure," also developed by Mrs. Renauld and Mrs. Neal, featured islands of the Caribbean. After selecting 
an island, students studied about its location, food, flora and fauna, song, dance, stories and means of making 
a living. As a culminating activity, students presented what they had learned at an evening performance. Many 
thanks go out to Carol Wrobleski, school secretary; Michael Wescott, parent and chef; and Mike O'Connell, PE 
teacher. Without their efforts the evening would not have been the great success that it was.

Last spring, Mrs. Betsy Sullivan, grade 4 teacher, received the Harold Grinspoon Award for teaching excellence. 
This award annually recognizes outstanding teachers in the Pioneer Valley and underscores the critical role 
that teachers play in preparing youth for the future. 

Our school takes pride in the fact that New Hingham continues to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) on the 
MCAS tests. Students performed at the "High" level in the English Language Arts portion of the test and at the 
"Moderate" level in math. 

New Hingham said "good-bye" to Mrs. Jane Swanda and Mrs. Ingrid Warren last year. Mrs. Swanda retired mid- 
year while Mrs. Warren left in June. The school staff and students said their good-byes in school assemblies. 
Lori Carey was hired to teach first grade for this school year. Maura Carbery, formerly the pre-school teacher, 
transferred to second grade, taking over for Mrs. Warren. Charlene Bosworth joined the staff as the new pre- 
school teacher. 

The enrollments at New Hingham and the Chesterfield-Goshen students at Hampshire Regional for school year 
2006-2007 are as follows:

The School Committee continues to work hard to maintain open communications with town boards and 
community members. Two CGMAC Meetings (Chesterfield/Goshen Municipal Advisory Council) are held annually 
to review school needs, the school budgets and state/local funding sources. 

This is the second year that the School Committee has been working with the Financial Advisory Board, 
established by the state to address the budget deficit. This has been a positive relationship for Chesterfield 
and Goshen. The School Committee is happy to note that the school has been able to reduce the deficit 
considerably and anticipates that it will be erased completely far in advance of the ten-year time line 
established by the state.

WILLIAM E. NORRIS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 



We have made significant advancements in the area of technology at Norris. Phases II and III of technology 
acquisition were completed a year ahead of schedule. Every teacher, nurse, office staff and the principal have 
been provided with a new Dell computer. This year saw implementation of the Computer on Wheels (COWS), 
the twenty-seven wireless Dell laptops have been extensively utilized from first through sixth grade. Our 
outdated mini computer lab in the library was expanded to ten stations and updated with all new Dell 
computers. 

The professional development committee concentrated on supporting teacher use of these technological 
advances. The committee conducted a professional development survey and offered the following professional 
development activities: COWs training, video streaming, digital camera training, VGA adaptor use, multi-media 
training and Microsoft Excel 101. 

The Norris school was able to offer Meet-Your-Teacher Day for the second year in a row. This eliminates 
student anxiety about who will be in their class and what their teacher is really like as they anticipate the new 
school year. The school has continued to support Responsive Classroom and the Peace Builders Program. The 
state's directive to recognize Citizen/Constitution Day resulted in Mrs. Burke, fifth grade teacher; Mrs. Man, 
the librarian; and Mrs. Carmichael, our secretary, creating a wonderful school-wide celebration. 

Norris has taken the initial steps toward creating a first-class mentoring/ new teacher induction program, which 
will take several years to reach full implementation. This year, we had a mentor coordinator and a formal 
mentoring committee that met monthly. All of our new teachers were assigned a mentor. 

Annually, the Norris school hosts a Veterans' Day Celebration, recognizing both veterans on our staff and in the 
community. This year, staff members Mr. Moynihan, Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Carmichael coordinated this 
recognition ceremony and luncheon. 

In the area of safety, the school has acquired six industrial two-way radios with our own Norris FCC registered 
frequency for emergency communication as for use during daily playground duty. These radios provide 
communication for those assigned in difficult one-on-one situations. The vehicular pick-up and drop-off plan 
was altered a safer student pedestrian environment around the school. Part of this plan was the creation of an 
additional sidewalk along the Gunn Road Extension side of the building. This past fall, through the generosity of 
a parent, the school was able to install a buzzer system at the school entrance. 

Students at the Norris school performed at the "High" level on the English Language Arts portion of the MCAS, 
administered in the spring 2006. In the math area, overall student performance was rated as "Low." The school 
met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in the English area but not in Math. 

The school welcomed several new faculty members. Roxie Duval is the new preschool teacher. Roxie took over for Megan 
Johnson who moved to first grade; Pam Parker replaced Kate Stephens, who decided to pursue other interests, as the 
special education teacher for kindergarten through grade 2; Amy Boisjolie assumed the special education teacher position 
for grades 3 and 4, vacated by Isabel Field, who retired after over 30 years as a special education teacher; Erica Bell, speech 
and language pathologist, went out on maternity leave. Judy Scott-Griess announced her intention not to return to Norris 
after ten years as a paraprofessional. School-of-Cholce funds also allowed us to hire our first assistant principal, Barbara 
Barlow. 

Several teachers were recognized for special contributions to the school and/or their profession. Shirley Anop 
received the Barbara Kapron Award for Excellence in Teaching Social Studies from the Massachusetts Council 
for Social Studies. Kevin Hodgeson's use of technology was recognized In Scholastic News . Kevin was also 
awarded the "Excellence In Teaching Award" by the New England Association of Teachers of English. Jim Hallet 
and Susan Hale contributed time, energy and effort to the Student Council. Diane Scott provided a school 
assembly to remember the spirit and contributions of civil rights crusader, Rosa Parks. Gail Poulan published 
our weekly parent newsletter, featuring photos of students engaged in a variety of Norris school activities. 
Cheryl Salomao initiated the primary grade use of laptop computers, encouraging her colleagues to follow suit. 

Enrollments at the Norris school and Southampton students at Hampshire Regional are as follows:

WESTHAMPTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 

Westhampton Elementary School has many strong programs. Among the strongest is the reading and language 
program. Students who have difficulty reading have access to and are well supported by many remediation 
opportunities. We have two reading and literacy teachers/support people on staff to provide quality support 
and training In the area of reading. 

A new after-school program was added this year. Hosted by Greg Kerstetter, Andrea Wolf and Principal Deane 
Bates, the program was designed to give fourth grade students extra instruction and practice in math. The 
math instruction/support was geared around the math that students would find on the MCAS test in the spring. 
Parents and students found the program to be very helpful and applaud the staff for their efforts. 

We hosted the district summer program at Westhampton Elementary, including students from Williamsburg, 
Chesterfield and Goshen. The purpose of the combined program was to provide a setting with more children at 
each grade level. We also held the district Pre-school Summer Program at our school and included pre- 
schoolers from all five towns in the Hampshire districts. 

This year for Community Day, members of the Westhampton Community and our students sent math games 
that were made here at the school to students from Pass Christian. Pass Christian is a town in Louisiana that 
was hit hard by Hurricane Katrina. Following the hurricane last year, Westhampton Elementary School 
established a relationship with Pass Christian that continued through this year. 

Math-a-Magic was the school-wide theme for this year. Math-a-Magic Day was held In May and featured many 
family oriented math games and activities. Many thanks to all those who planned this special day, and to those 
who came to enjoy it with us. 

Our school has its own Automatic External Defibrillator (AED), to be used for staff and/or community members 
in the event of an emergency. Several members of our staff were trained in the proper use of the AED and also 
in First Responder. The training was provided by Lee Douchkoff, John Shaw and Bob Miller. We also opened up 
that training to members of HRHS Staff and our after school people. 

Our students took part in several exciting field trips this year. Our PTO, through its fundraislng, helped to 
defray the transportation costs of the field trips. Students in kindergarten through third grade went to UMass to 
see Aesop's Fable. The local cultural council partially sponsored this trip. In February grades 4-6 went to see a 
Japanese drumming and dance performance-called "Taikoza." Thanks to everyone who supported the PTO 
events as we would not be able to provide these opportunities for our young people without the funding.

Students celebrated Martin Luther King Day by having a "Mix it up." The purpose of this day was to help 
students recognize the contributions of Dr. King and also to help students leam to deal positively with 
diversity. 

Westhampton Elementary started a student council group this past year. This organization allowed students a 
voice 1n the decision-making process here at the school. They kicked -off event for starting the Student Council 
was a school spirit day. 

Each spring, students take the MCAS test. In the spring of 2006, Westhampton students performed at the 
"Moderate" level in both the English Language Arts and Math portions of the test. The school made Adequate 
Yearly Progress (AYP) in the Math area, but not in English. 

Mrs. Debbie Brooks, Grade 1 teacher, was honored at a special gathering at the Log Cabin in May. At that time, 
Debbie received the Harold Grinspoon Award for teaching excellence. This award annually recognizes 
outstanding teachers in the Pioneer Valley and underscores the critical role that teachers play in preparing 
youth for the future. Congratulations to Debbie! 

Westhampton Elementary School saw several staff changes this past year. Jenny Finnie left us in the fall to 
have a baby, and then returned in November. Ginny Brown filled in for Jenny during her absence. Bridget King 
was also out on a maternity leave, but extended her leave for the full year. John Bye was hired to teach third 
grade this year to cover Bridget's leave. He did an outstanding job. Congratulations to both Bridget and Jenny 
on the birth of their sons. Donna Barcomb was hired to replace Rick Gomez as a classroom aide. Rick moved on 
to take a teaching position in another district.

WILLIAMSBURG SCHOOLS 

Students in the Williamsburg Schools had a wonderful and exciting year. The school planned and carried out 
several curricular and extra-curricular programs and events, all of which helped enrich the learning 
experiences for our young people. 

Hope Guardenier taught garden classes to each James School class on Fridays in the spring of 2006. She worked 
with teachers to focus lessons on their curriculum needs. We were very lucky to have her (she is in great 
demand, running garden programs in Easthampton and Holyoke). We also scheduled farm visits in the spring. 

Over the course of the school year "Family Fridays" provided ongoing opportunities for families to bring their 
children to the Helen E. James School to participate in an open yet structured Family time in the pre school 
room. The themes for the first session include; "Messy Art", "Fun with Mary Ellen", "Science Discoveries" and 



85 



"Music with Amanda". The program is offered every Friday. Laraine Child's coordinated the events and the 
space. 

The annual Harvest Feast was held at the Helen E. James School after the recreation soccer program. This was 
a most delicious event! All the classes cooked a dish for the celebration of our local harvest. The afternoon 
consisted of garden projects with Hope, the feast and entertainment followed by more garden projects for 
enthusiastic soccer players. This was a wonderful opportunity to roll up our sleeves, taste the bounty of our 
school harvest, and see the garden program. Over 150 people participated in the wonderful event. 

Relief effort work for Hurricane Katrina victims was coordinated by the grade 6 classes during Open House. 
Collection cans were located in each classroom into which families dropped their spare change. Also collection 
boxes for new or (like new) toys and clothes for children were at the entrance of each school. 

Big Rig Day was held in October. Over 50 different big rigs covered the field of the Anne T. Dunphy School the 
morning of October 3. Mr. Pete Banister of the Williamsburg Highway Department successfully coordinated the 
Big Rig event. A fire truck with a 90 Foot tall extension ladder truck, a bucket loader that held all 30 grade 5 
students, police cars, and even a school bus rounded out the complement of over 50 vehicles. Every student 
had an opportunity to have an up close look at some of the big trucks that help in our community. The event 
was completed with a 'Truckers picnic lunch". One of the benefits of such events is the natural connections 
that teachers help students make between our working lives and the academics of school. 

The Williamsburg School Council in the capacity of the District Title I Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) 
sponsored a one-hour writing workshop for parents. The workshop focused on the District use of the DWA 
(Developing Writer's Assessment). Pat Maynard and Sharon Moulton presented information regarding how the 
DWA is used to focus writing Instruction, how the data is tracked over time and how teacher adjust instruction 
based on the data from the assessment. 

The PTO focused on fundraising efforts to support renovation and additions to the aging Playground Structure 
located at the Helen E. James School and new physical education equipment for the Anne T. Dunphy School. A 
subcommittee of the PTO with a playground focus formed and the playground was erected in the fall of 2006. 

For three years Fertile Ground raised funds for a collaborative partnership with Nuestras Raices, a community 
development organi2ation in Holyoke. Through this program, youth leaders, trained in gardening and farming, 
share their knowledge of agriculture and Puerto Rico with James School children and families during garden 
work days. Their work with our students included corresponding with Kindergarten children in Spanish as pen 
pals, sharing recipes, and hosting a field trip to the Nuestras Raices community center, gardens, urban farm, 
organic bakery, and traditional Puerto Rican Cafe in Holyoke. These youth helped build the garden and 
sprinkler system at the James School. 

This year we have received funding from Art Angels, the New England Grassroots Environment Fund, and 
Haymarket People's Fund to create a mural together. The James School children and their teachers developed 
the mural through drawings and collage. It was designed and laid out by the Nuestras Raices youth, and then 
painted on panels in art class during the spring by the K - 3rd graders using kid friendly paint. We mounted the 
panels on the empty wall space near the rear exit of the building during our annual Nuestras Raices community 
garden day in late May. 

The Cultural Arts Committee successfully sponsored the second annual Arts Adventure Day on Monday, March 
1 3 th . The day welcomed artists from our own parent community, the local college community and the 
community at large to who shared their special talents with our students. Each class experienced three 
different art forms (dance, theatre, visual art, music) throughout the morning, culminating in a special 
performance for the Dunphy School students by "5-Alone," an a cappella group from PVPA. 

Science Night /Spaghetti Dinner on March 24 was an evening of family fun! The annual Science Night/Spaghetti 
Dinner/Class Basket Raffle very successful. Over 250 people were seated for dinner as grade 6 students worked 
as Servers. Science demonstrations and many hands on activities provided for focused science learning through 
out the event. David Sprague the school adjustment counselor was joined by a number of student drummers to 
add an entertainment element to the evening. Finally 12 lucky people walked away with theme baskets 
created by the PTO. The funds raised will help support efforts to improve the outdoor school spaces used by 
the students. 

School Musical was held on Friday April 7. Martha Cycz directed a wonderful school musical "Dance to the 
Beat" - A World of Rhythms and Dances. 14 musical performances that included every student from every class 



86 



demonstrated some of the many rhythms and dances that make up today's music. The continents of Europe, 
South America, Africa, Southeast Asia and North America were represented during the show. Music came to life 
through drumming, dance, violin, guitar, piano, dulcimer, and most certainly voice. All had many wonderful 
performances. 

Simple Machines Day was held on April 10, 2006. Parents Sue Froehlich and Paul Wetzel working with grade 1 , 
2 and 4 teachers pulled together a day of hands on science. Pulleys, inclined planes, wheelbarrows and rollers 
made heavy work simple through simple machines. All grade 1, 2 and 4 students were engaged for over 2 hours 
in real life demonstrations of simple machines. It is no coincidence that this aspect of physics and engineering 
is part of both the grade 1 -2 and grade 4-science curriculum. 

Each spring, students in Williamsburg participate in the annual administration of the MCAS test. In 2006, 
student performance in both the Math and English Language Arts portions of the test was rated as "Moderate. " 
The school met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in math, but not in English. 

Heather Holmquist joined our staff as School Nurse late October. Heather replaced retiring School Nurse Cathy 
Marek. Roberta Ruggiero Director of Food Services moved out of State leaving after 1 5 years of service to the 
Williamsburg School Department. Renee Harvey, long time teacher assistant in Williamsburg, took over for 
Roberta in the Fall 2007 as the Director of Food Service. Susan Smith took a one-year leave to take a math 
coaching position in another district. 

The district was notified that $19,000 was allocated to the Williamsburg School District as part "Pot Hole" 
(Reserve Fund Grant) funds. In the application the District outlined a couple of specific needs including a 
bucking floor in the PreK classroom, positive lead test result remediation, and other than ordinary 
boiler/ heating repairs. Plumbing work necessary to remediate lead levels in the drinking water of both the 
Anne T. Dunphy School and Helen E. James School was completed over the February Vacation. In the Dunphy 
School a new feed line for water used work drinking and cooking was installed. In addition a drinking fountain 
was installed in the classroom wing taking the place of the in class drinking water that was tainted with lead. 
The remaining plumbing was unchanged. 3 lead-free drinking fountains were installed replacing the 3 existing 
James School fountains. The buckling floor in the James School Preschool was repaired including the removal 
of some mold stained sub-flooring. In addition a ramp was installed providing ADA access to the Pre-School 
classroom. Finally the air-handling unit was updated to increase fresh air circulation in the space. 

The adoption of the school budget for 2006-07 resulted in some significant changes for Williamsburg schools. 
Once again, the town demonstrated its support for the schools by passing an override. However, the school 
budget also needed to be reduced. As a result, third grade students were transferred to the Anne T. Dunphy 
School and the upper floor of the James School was closed. This resulted in a reduction in custodial hours and 
daily cleaning/maintenance costs. Teaching staff was also reduced, resulting in higher class sizes. As the school 
year progressed, the fourth grade was split into two classes to better accommodate the high class size.

HAMPSHIRE REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL 



A major focus for Hampshire Regional 1n 2006 was to prepare for and host the accreditation team from NEASC 
(New England Association of Schools and Colleges), which evaluates and accredits high schools every ten years. 
The 15-member visiting team arrived In March and spent three days meeting and talking with staff members, 
reviewing documents and observing classes. The report from the visiting team was shared with the school in 
the fall. It highlighted many commendations in the areas of instruction; evidence of the school mission in the 
daily life of the school; the school facility; a safe, positive and supportive school environment; and the wide 
variety of community resources used to enhance services to students. The committee proposed improvement in 
the areas of increased teacher involvement in curriculum development; curricular coordination between all 
academic areas, and increased use of data for ongoing review of curriculum and student achievement of 
expectations. The high school will continue to use the report to provide direction for its programs and staff 
development. A follow-up report on will be prepared and sent to NEASC in November 2007. 

Our middle school program continues to have strong communication links with our families. We have many 
strong academic and athletic programs at HRHS. The staff at Hampshire Regional is committed to supporting all 
our students. Several evening events were held to inform students and parents of the programs and extra 
curricular offerings we have at our school. The Open House and Course Selection Night are two examples. 

In the summer of 2006, twenty-four teachers attended a workshop during which time they explored "Layered 
Curriculum," a student-centered approach to teaching. Through the strategies presented, teachers learned 
strategies for differentiating the curriculum to meet the wide range of student interests and abilities. Several 
teachers used the layered curriculum approach for selected units of instruction during the fall. 

Each spring, students at Hampshire Regional participate in the annual MCAS tests. In 2006, student 
performance in both the English Language Arts area was rated as "High," while student performance in Math 
was rated as "Moderate." The school made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) in all areas, including its sub- 
groups. 

Several years ago the School Council committed to administering surveys to a sample group of our parents, 
students, and faculty and staff. The goal was to sample these three groups in a six-year period, so that in the 
course of a typical student's tenure at HRHS parents, students, and faculty and staff would have an opportunity 
to communicate what works 'and what needs to be addressed in our school programs. Three years ago the 
Council developed and administered a phone survey to over one hundred parents. The information from that 
survey helped us to refine our school improvement plan. Last year the Council developed a student survey. In 
the spring of 2006, a random sample of over one hundred students took the survey. This fall the Council 
compiled the results. They are now sharing that information with our school community. Though most of the 
survey was very positive with students reporting they felt supported by parents and supported by each other, in 
regards to weapons and drugs and alcohol, some students reported concern. As a result, the School Council 
developed an administered a mini survey to all HRHS students in January to take a closer look at this area. At 
the writing of this report, the data was still being examined by the School Council, who will make the 
information and report available to the school community once it is complete. 

Hampshire was able to expand its Program of Studies to include a pilot internship program. The internships 
were designed to help students prepare for life after high school, develop a mentorship relationship with adults 
outside the school setting and motivate students in their studies by providing real-world experiences in the 
educational program. 

Hampshire Regional High School reached out to our sending communities in new ways this year. Mrs. Ann 
Trytko, Athletic Director, arranged for elementary age town sports groups to be guests at one of the Hampshire 
Regional basketball games. Each elementary group had their own special evening when were invited to the 
game, got to shoot basketballs with the team during the half time and received vouchers for free snacks at the 
snack bar. This outreach effort is designed to bring our young students to the high school so they get to see us 
and look forward to attending our school once they reach seventh grade. 

Another outreach effort was accomplished by Robbie Merrington, Drama Coach, who took her drama group on 
the road and performed "Steel Magnolias'Mn front of seniors in Williamsburg. Area golden age groups were also 
invited to attend. Everyone had a wonderful time. 

For the third consecutive year, the Hampshire Regional budget passed through town meetings on schedule. 
Included in the 07 budget was money for two new teachers, one science and one world language. However, 



88 



when we had to go out for a new bus contract at a higher rate, the additional world language position was not 
funded. 

Hampshire Regional said good-bye to several staff members. Guidance administrative assistant Henrietta 
Munroe retired at the end of this school year. Hennie served the Hampshire Regional School District in a 
number of capacities for the past thirty-five years. Maureen Monaghan transferred from the main office to 
work as the new guidance administrative assistant. Robin Thayer was hired to replace Maureen. Business 
Technology teacher Carole Landry was scheduled to retire at the end of the school year. Carole passed away 
during the school year after a valiant battle with cancer. Laura Facteau transferred from world language to 
teach business and was replaced by Penelope Walker. PE teacher Desi Vega took a one-year leave to pursue 
other interests In another state. Kara Yereance was hired as his replacement. Laurel Christoferson is the new 
middle school science teacher. Robbie Merrington retired as the drama coach after fifteen years of working 
with Hampshire students. Three new custodians were hired to replace those who moved on to other positions. 
We welcomed Todd Kline, Nate MacBrian and Mike Cummings. 

Hampshire Regional would like to recognize the efforts of several staff members. Kelly Carpenter and Rob 
Norton are recognized for their work as co-chairs to our NEASC Steering Committee. They successfully lead the 
school through the Self Study and March 2006 visit. Tom Smith, second year Physics teacher, was recognized as 
a Teacher of excellence by the Grinspoon Foundation. Kim Rose was recognized for her tireless efforts making 
the Student Council an integral piece of our school community. Ann Trytko was recognized for improving 
communication between our athletic programs and the greater school community. Her enthusiasm and cheer 
inspires everyone around her. Robbie Merrington is recognized for fifteen years of going above and beyond the 
call advising our middle and high school drama programs. Todd Bryant is recognized for sharing his experiences 
with The Layered Curriculum. This approach holds great promise In helping us move toward a more student- 
centered approach to teaching.

Annual Report of the Finance Committee 



The Town of Williamsburg Finance Committee is composed by nine elected officials who meet 
monthly to approve budget transfers for the town operating departments and works with those 
departments and the select board to create the town budget which is presented to the annual town 
meeting for discussion and approval. The intensive spring ritual which results in the budget requires 
many hours of discussion on state funding availability which is generally not a known quantity 
throughout most of the process. 

The Finance Committee works closely with both the Select Board and the Capital Planning 
Committee. 

Each year at Town Meeting the Finance Committee is authorized to expend up to a specified dollar 
amount to cover unforeseen departmental expenses. The 2006 budget transfers authorized by the 
Finance Committee are show below.

Fire Chief, Donald Lawton 
P.O. Box 425 

Williamsburg, MA 01096 




Visit us at williamsburgfire.com 



The Fire Department responded to 203 calls in 2006. This is 6 more calls 
than in 2005. Although we had no major fires in Williamsburg in 2006, we 
did respond mutual aid to surrounding towns for serious fires. The majority 
of our calls in 2006 were automobile accidents. In the fall of 2006 we 
responded to an average of 1 accident per day. These mainly occurred on 
Route 9 between the Brassworks and the Bridge & High street intersection. 

Each year we are asked to do more with no increase in our budget. 
Keeping up with increased costs such as fuel, heating oil, servicing and 
maintaining equipment,as well as trainings such as CPR & First Responder 
certification is almost impossible. The firefighters are the lowest paid 
employees in town with the highest amount of training. The basic training 
required to become a certified firefighter is over 160 hours. In addition to 
those hours, the fire department trains at least two nights per. month. This 
training not only is part of our job, but it also ensures the safety of others as 
well as our members. 

We received a $2000.00 grant in 2006 for SAFE education in our 
schools. Matt Bruso is our SAFE educator and is doing a fine job. 

We received our new Engine II from E One Fire Apparatus company in 
May of 2006 and it is servicing us well. 

I would like to thank everyone who has sent us donations this past year, it 
has helped defray some costs and has helped to keep us operating. 

I especially want to thank all those involved with the fire department for 
a job well done!

Annual Report of the Foothills Health Agent 



2006 was another busy and interesting year for me as your health agent, with higher fuel costs 
and interest rates slowing the building season and the warm winter extending it. Altogether in 
Williamsburg, I witnessed 9 perc tests, 1 1 Title V inspections, and performed 17 food 
inspections. I investigated 6 complaints requiring 10 inspections. I issued 1 1 food permits, 1 
massage therapy permit, 1 well permits, 9 septic system permits, and 1 beaver removal permit 
A total of $3,710 was collected in fees. 

Some headway was made in the planning of the town's Emergency Dispensing Site Plan - which 
requires that we have the Anne T. Dunphy School up and running as the location where 
everybody in Williamsburg and Goshen can be immunized in the event of a significant public 
health event. I had to relinquish future planning to the board of Health and the Emergency 
Management Director owing to my other responsibilities. 

In June, town officials received training in the National Incident Management System and 
Incident Command Structure, which is mandated by Homeland Security, and was sponsored by 
the Foothills Health District. 

I expect 2007 to be another busy year, but not too busy to help you. If you need me, call me at 
268-8404. Be patient, as I receive several thousand phone calls each year. In person help must 
be scheduled in advance. Written messages or mail should be directed to me at P.O. Box 447, 
Haydenville, MA 01039. I look forward to another year as your Health Agent. My thanks to all 
who have made this past year an interesting work experience. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Jackie Duda

Annual Report of the Board of Health 



Recycling is a very important function of the Board of Health (as well as all residents of our 
town). We receive significant income from recycled materials which reduces the cost to the 
town of waste management. This year, we purchased a second container for recycled materials. 
This makes it possible to always ship full containers, an additional economy by lowering 
shipping costs. 

We have also recently signed an agreement with "Got Books?" They have placed a container at 
the Transfer Station for books, records, computer games, etc. and we receive $20 a ton for full 
containers. 

We thank John Pepi for doing an annual inspection of the Transfer Station required by the 
Department of Environmental Protection. DEP also requires annual testing of ground water 
around the old wood waste area. Both tests were passed satisfactorily. 

As a member of the Hilltown Resource Management Cooperative, we have received payments 
which cover the cost of hazardous waste collection and fees for disposal of regular waste have 
also been lowered. 

Receipts are always available for payment for disposal of materials for which there is a charge. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ira Gabrielson

Annual Report of Highland Ambulance EMS 



Operations. Highland Ambulance is the primary ambulance service provider for the towns 
of Ashfield, Chesterfield, Cummington, Goshen, Plainfield and Williamsburg. We serve 
approximately 8100 residents spread out over an area of 160 square miles. At the end of 2006 
Highland had an active roster of 39 EMT's including 10 Paramedics. 

Training. Andy Wickline, our full time EMT, attained paramedic certification. In 2006 
training courses included, a first responder course open to all emergency personnel in our 
area; CPR class; paramedic assistance course for basic EMT's and an emergency vehicle

Along with all of the normal yearly maintenance and snow removal the following construction 
projects were done: 

The following Roads were edged and shimmed to help with drainage then sealed with a rubberized 
chip seal. The upper end of Petticoat Hill Road, Nash Hill Road from O'Neil Road to the dirt part of 
Nash, Dewey Cir, Cole Road, and The Lope. 

Drainage was installed on Depot Road From just before #25 to the intersection of Adams Road. 
Then the Road was reclaimed. Fabric and Gravel were installed as needed and then the Road was 
paved. 

Hyde Hill Branch was reclaimed and Drainage was installed with a thin layer of new Gravel 
covering the Road. When money is available a hard surface will be installed. 

The sidewalks on the bridge at the beginning of North Street Were raised and a berm installed to 
help keep cars and pedestrians safer. 

Chesterfield Road, North Street, South Street, and North Farms were Cracksealed. 

I would like to thank the Highway crew, Don Turner, Ken Taylor and Pete Banister, for then- 
dedicated service to the Town of Williamsburg Highway Department and all the subcontractors that 
help with snow removal. 



Thank You

Annual Report of Hilltown Community Development Corporation 

In fiscal year 2006 (July 1, 2005 - June 30, 2006), Hilltown CDC completed construction on the 
Westhampton Woods Senior Housing project in Westhampton. After three years of planning, design 
and construction, residents moved into the seven new homes in January and February. The Westhampton 
Woods complex contributes the first subsidized elderly housing units to the Town of Westhampton. The 
project was designed by the architectural firm of Pierre Belheumer and built by Saloomey Construction of 
Westfield. Funding for the project was secured from the Bank of Western Massachusetts, The 
Massachusetts Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AFT), the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, 
Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP), the Community Economic Development Assistance 
Corporation (CEDAC), Western Massachusetts Electric Company (WMECO), and pro bono legal 
assistance from Felicity Hardee of Bulkley, Richardson and Gelinas, LLP. 

In March 2006, Hilltown CDC submitted a funding application on behalf of the Town of Huntington to 
the Massachusetts Dept. of Housing and Community Development's Housing Development Support 
Program (HDSP) to fund the acquisition and renovation of a four-unit building at 6 Blandford Hill 
Road in Huntington. Constructed as mill-worker housing a century ago, the building sat vacant for the 
past five years during unsuccessful renovation attempts by private owners. Hilltown CDC plans to 
restore the building to productive use and add four units of rental housing to the Hilltown affordable 
housing stock. 

The pre-development phase of Hilltown CDC's Laurel Road project in Haydenville continued to move 
forward in FY2006. The 22-acre parcel, located on town water and sewer and within walking of 
Haydenville Center, was purchased in FY2006, and funding was negotiated with multiple public and 
private lenders. Eleven single-family units will be built, in a cluster style development that preserves 
seventy-five percent of the land as open space, and sold to low and moderate income first time 
homebuyers. 

In March, Hilltown CDC submitted a $1.2 million regional Community Development Block Grant 
(CDBG) application on behalf of Chesterfield and six neighboring communities which included funds for: 
housing rehabilitation, first time homebuyer counseling and down payment assistance, construction funds 
for a new roof and windows at the Hillside Terrace senior housing complex in Cummington, a regional 
senior center study, pre-development funds to research and design senior housing and cluster affordable 
housing projects, and funding for four social service programs: Hilltown Elder Network (HEN), Health 
Outreach Program for Elders (HOPE), Families Together, and the Hilltown Food Pantry. The CDC also 
submitted an $800,000 application on behalf of the Town of Plainfield to fund construction of a new 
Public Safety Building and a housing rehabilitation program. (Note: Funding was awarded for these two 
grants in FY2007 and work is proceeding on the respective projects.) The CDC submitted an $800,000 
application on behalf of the Town of Worthington to fund renovations to The Maples senior housing 
complex and an elder services program. (Note: This grant was not awarded. It is being re-submitted in 
the following annual CDBG application cycle. 

Marie Burkart completed five and a half years of dedicated and highly successful service as Executive 
Director, resigning in June to pursue new interests. Hilltown CDC hired Andrew Baker in June as its new 
Executive Director and hired Paul Lischetti as its new Housing Director. Andrew Baker ran the 
downtown revitalization program in nearby Shelburne Falls and served for seven years as director of the 
Shelburne Falls Area Business Association. Paul Lishetti brings over twenty years of housing 
development experience to Hilltown CDC, having served most recently as Executive Director of the 
Westfield CDC.

Haydenville, MA 01039-0447 

Annual Report 
2006 



Historical Commission 

The Historical Commission, under the direction of the Town Clerk, has continued in 
an effort to make early records of the Town more accessible to the public, copying and 
indexing. Historical and genealogical information has been compiled from Town 
Records, registered deeds and many other sources, on land use, succession of ownership, 
and many of the early families in town. A database has been created from Town Reports 
listing births, marriages and deaths from 1904 to the present. An index of the 
Williamsburg High School yearbook, The Tattler, has been completed, listing everyone 
who has attended from 1923 to 1971. 

High resolution copies of the 1795 and 1831 Town Maps and the 1771 Town Charter 
have been procured from the State Archivist. 

All information listed above is made available on request. 

Members of the Commission have assisted the Town Clerk in responding to 
numerous requests from local and visiting researchers for specific genealogical and 
historical information. A committee from the Long Island Museum gathered information 
and images and created a DVD about the Graves Carriage Shop, now assimilated by 
them. The owners of Brewmaster's Tavern, during renovations, sought details on the 
history of the Williams House.

Annual Report of the Police Department 

This has been another year of re-building for the department. 

From July 2006 to December 2006, Sergeant Denise Wickland attended and completed the full time 
police academy held at STCC, in Springfield MA. 

Sergeant Wickland is Williamsburg's full time police sergeant. Payment for this training was a joint 
venture between the towns of Williamsburg and Chesterfield. 

During this year two officers moved on. 

Officer Sean Hoye is now Trooper Sean Hoye, Massachusetts State Police. 
Officer Dan Warner started his own business; he continues working in Hatfield. 

Promoted: 

Officer William Chapman was promoted to Detective. 
Officers: 

Officers Aimee Wallace, Michael Wayne and Jeffery Brooks, have been and continue to be the back bone 
of the department, keeping the station open five plus days per week, and providing patrol coverage on a 
random basis. 

Police Chaplain: 

Reverend Joshua Davis from the Williamsburg Congregational Church was appointed Chaplain for the 
Williamsburg Police Department. 

The police department is committed to saving energy. 

Installation of a programmable energy saving thermostat, has helped save heating fuel. 
Energy efficient light bulbs have been installed, replacing incandescent bulbs. 

The department is scheduled to replace our 2001 Ford police cruiser. Manufactures are now producing 
police cruisers which could save up to twenty percent on gasoline consumption. If one of these vehicles 
will meet our needs for a police cruiser, I hope town meeting members will approve the purchase. 

Hours of operation: 

At present, the department is open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 8:00 AM to 
12:00 Noon. Wednesday evening the department is open from 4:00PM to 8:00PM. 

The department owes a big "thank you" to the Meekins Library and Lisa Wenner Library Director. Police 
Officers from Williamsburg and surrounding towns have attended training sessions held in the Hawkins 
Hayden Community room during the past year. 

On going training is very important to maintaining professional police officers. The availability of this 
room, allows for local training, saving trips to Springfield or other long distance training sites. 

I extend an open invitation to residents of Williamsburg to stop at the Police station, meet the officers and 
tour the facility. 

John W. Cotton 
Chief of Police

Annual Report of the Board of Selectmen 



This past year, the Board said goodbye to two term selectman David "Rabbitt" Haskell who passed away 
on June 9 , 2006 at the end of his second term. Rabbitt was a public servant in the most classic sense. 
He always carried a notebook where he would pencil in resident's concerns so that he could check on 
them personally. Some people have their "PDA" to electronically keep track of dates and reminders, 
Rabbitt always commented that his "PAD" served him just as well or better and "didn't need any 
batteries!" During Rabbitt's tenure, the Select Board tried to acknowledge special occasions in citizens' 
lives with a formal letter of thanks or congratulations. It was Rabbitt's idea to make these letters "suitable 
for framing" as he liked to say. He was one of a kind and we will all miss him. 

The Board welcomed former selectman, Jeff Ciuffreda, who replaced Rabbitt Haskell. Jeffs valuable 
experience will serve the town well in the years to come. The Board was re-organized with Eric Cerreta 
as Chairman and Denise Banister as Clerk. 

The Board of Selectmen spent most of 2006 dealing with the re-organization of our financial department 
due to the resignations of Kimberly Hyslip as Town Accountant and Karen Karowski as Town Treasurer. 
After Hyslip's replacement, Donna Allard's short tenure, the Board hired the Franklin Regional Council 
of Governments for Town Accountant services. We feel that this will give us more continuity as we will 
be relying on the FRCOG and not an individual. We have the added bonus of having Janet Swem oversee 
our accounting needs as representative of the FRCOG. As some of you may remember, Janet served 
Williamsburg very well as Town Accountant several years ago. 

The Select Board also appointed Peter Mahieu as Treasurer in November of 2006 and we have been 
pleased with his work ethic and abilities. Peter has spent many hours learning the outdated software that 
has been used here for many years and is working on converting to a more modern windows based 
program for the future. We thank him for stepping up to the plate and taking on this difficult task. 

Our operating budget was a challenge, as it has been for several years. As you may remember, our 
assessment at Hampshire Regional continues to rise at a faster rate than the other four towns due to a 
formula change that was instituted by the Massachusetts Department of Education (DOE) a few years 
ago. Our very vocal objections to this by elected officials and some dedicated residents have put this 
issue on the radar for the DOE. We don't however feel that it will be solved to any great degree soon 
enough to help with next year's budget. In order to deal with the reality of this difficult situation, we have 
been forced to once again level fund the budgets in town to cope with the loss of revenue. We appreciate 
the sacrifices that our department heads have been making, but we don't feel that we can continue in this 
trend without services provided by the town being affected more drastically. 

An important project that has been going on throughout 2006/2007 is the renovation of our Veterans' 
Memorial Park. Work was started in 2005 by Rabbitt Haskell and Butch Smith to add wings to the 
memorial for newer veterans to be memorialized in the future. After Rabbitt became ill, several of his 
friends and fellow Vietnam Veterans came forward to finish the project. Butch Smith and Jim Lebeau 
finished adding the wings. Local landscape architect Nick Dines drew some plans for some updating of 
the patio, flagpoles and plantings. Joel Strate and his staff laid the new Goshen stone for the patio that 
was donated by Gary Warner's Goshen Stone Company. Our local Highway Department has been there 
every time machinery or manpower has been needed as well. Local businesses have been generous with 
donations to pay for the flagpoles and other expenses. It has been a pleasure to watch all of the people 
who have contributed to this worthy project and for them to do so in Rabbitt's memory. I'm sure he 
would be touched. 

The Select Board would like to express our thanks and appreciation to everyone who gives of their time 
and talents to make our Williamsburg the special place it is to live.

Annual Report of the Shade Tree Committee 



During the last year, the Tree Committee has worked hard to protect our valuable community 
trees, while insuring safety along our roadways. The Tree Committee completed three tree 
surveys a year. We visually survey the town and evaluate trees that h ave been brought to ur 
attention as possibly being hazardous. Through a point system, we determine the potential risk 
that the tree poses. We use this information to prioritize tree removal. A town tree is defined as 
any tree within the town right-of-way. Often that is within 25 feet of the center of the road. A 
stonewall or property pin can take precedence for determining a town tree. This year, working 
with partners, we removed over 30 potentially hazardous trees in town. 

Another important part of our work is tree replacement. The committee feels that it is just as 
necessary to replace trees that have to be removed. We will be looking for places to replant trees 
this spring. Contact a tree committee member if you have a good idea for location. 

The committee is also concerned about actions by well meaning citizens that may endanger town 
trees. These include piling mulch around the base of a tree, called mulch volcanoes, cutting 
down town trees to install a driveway or enlarging a yard, or pruning town trees. By state law, 
cutting and pruning public trees requires prior approval of the Tree Committee/Tree Warden. 
Please contact the Tree Committee is you have any questions.

Annual Report of the Trust Fund and Cemetery Commission 

& 

Trustees of the Meekins Library Corporation 

The Trust Fund Commission is the governing board with the responsibility of overseeing the investment 
and distribution of the Trust Funds. There are 31 funds totaling $1,447,903.17 as of December 31, 2006. 
The Commission manages the funds with the assistance of Wachovia Securities. 

Recently, the Trust Fund received two gifts. The estate of Lois Scott contributing $25,000 to the Arthur 
King Fund and the estate of Gertrude Ronk contributed an estimated $3 1,088.78 (5% of her estate). For 
example, donations for the benefit of maintaining the town cemeteries are especially needed. Presently, 
mowing expenses consume all of our available funds. Additional contributions would enable us to 
maintain headstones, fences, etc. Contributions could be added to the existing Cemetery Perpetual Care 
Trust Fund or, if significant, named as a trust fund under the name of the donor. 

The trust accounts are open to direct investments from anyone interested in making such contributions. 
Others may choose to contribute through their estate plan. Either method would be very welcome. 

The distribution of the funds covers three major areas: student & school activities, benefits to the poor, 
and miscellaneous specialty matters. 

The Trust Fund Commission also handles endowment funds for the Meekins Library. The principal from 
the original library trust fund is being managed by the Commission as 'Trustees of the Meekins Library 
Corporation'. As with all town funds, we have the responsibility of investing the funds and making 
distributions. Requests are made by the library trustees for the same purposes as laid out in the original 
will. The formula for determining funding levels is the same for the Meekins Library as it is for school 
activities. 

Another responsibility of the commission is to administer the upkeep of the town's two cemeteries 
located at Old Village Hill and Mountain St. and sale of burial lots. Only Mountain St. has burial lots 
available. If anyone is interested in purchasing a plot, please contact this Commission. 

Selected provisions of the cemetery guideline include: 

• Pricing of new lots: & 750 for casket burial grave, $ 375 for a cremation lot; $600 to open a 
casket burial grave; $ 750 if done in frozen ground conditions; $ 100 to open cremation grave; all 
fees to be paid to the Williamsburg Cemetery Commission. 

• Two cremation urns are allowed in one cremation lot; four cremation urns are allowed in one 
casket lot. 

Our meetings are held the first and second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the town offices. 
Respectfully submitted, 
Jim DiDonato, Chair

Annual Report of the Veterans' Agent 

It was another year filled with memories and stories of those men and women that have already, and those 
that continue to, bravely serve and fight for the freedoms we cherish here in the United States. We 
remember and honor each and every one of them for their courage, strength, and sacrifice. 

Throughout this year so many wonderful individuals have worked hard to continue the renovation project 
at the Williamsburg Veterans' Memorial that David "Rabbitt" Haskell, a local Vietnam veteran who died 
in June 2006, began many years ago with his friend an fellow veteran Chandler "Butch" Smith. Rabbitt 
wanted to make sure no one who fought was ever forgotten and those who continue his work feel the 
same. Thanks to the continued hard work of Butch Smith, Nick Dines, the Highway Department, Jim 
LeBeau, the donation of stone and labor by Gary Warner, the many generous donations and countless 
others who I forget to name, we have plaques in an honored and beautiful place so that none will be 
forgotten. 

The 2006 Memorial Day program was held on Sunday, May 28, 2006, with a focus on women who 
served in the military. The history and growth of their service and dedication tells a story of growth and 
change for our country. The event kicked off with a visit to all 5 cemeteries. Father Dariusz Waborski, 
Heather Jones, and Pastor Josh Davis conducted services. The annual parade march began in front of the 
Williamsburg Fire house with veterans, girl and boy scout troops and residents ending at the 
Williamsburg Veterans' Memorial. It was a wonderful tribute aided by all those in attendance. 

The 2006 Veterans' Day service was held on Saturday, November 1 1, 2006 at the Williamsburg 
Veterans' Memorial Park. There was good attendance on a fairly warm day for the time of year, where 
many could hear the clear tones of taps played on the trumpet donated to the veterans by the 
Williamsburg branch of Florence Savings Bank. Veteran Russell Richardson had the honor of "playing" 
the trumpet in its debut as Daniel Warner held the flag. 

The Town of Williamsburg aided two veterans during 2006 providing support as needed. With the 
constant change in federal and state laws, the Town of Williamsburg has contracted with the City of 
Northampton in order to best provide aid and support to our local veterans. As of January 2007, if you 
are a veteran, or family member of a veteran in need of support, aid or just have a question, you may 
contact the Northampton Veterans' Agent by calling (413) 587-1251. 

The town will continue to appoint a Williamsburg Veterans' Agent as master of ceremonies. 

Donations were collected for the VA in Leeds and the Old Soldiers' Home in Holyoke. I will continue to 
take collections of the "small necessities of life" during the warmer months. Please consider buying extra 
toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving items, soap, etc. (every day items) and donating them to our veterans. 

As always, thank you to all that support my mission and special acknowledgement to my wonderful wofe 
for her unwavering and continuous support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Henry J. Warner 
Williamsburg Veterans' Agent

Annual Report of the Water and Sewer Commission 

In January 2007, the upper Unquomonk reservoir was drained because of safety concerns and 
conditions. Dam inspection will be done in the spring. We would like to point out that the state 
dam inspection officials reported to us that, if we had not already drained it, they would have 
mandated it to be done. This water source has not been equipped to serve as a back up water 
supply for many years and an agreement with the City of Northampton will be in place once their 
new treatment plant on Mountain Street is up and running in the near future. 

As many of you may be aware, the computer software used the last several years for billing is 
hard to work with and make changes to and does not enable us to comply with ever changing 
statistical reporting being required by the DEP. We have been looking into a new software 
program already in use by several other area towns. We are hoping to purchase and use this for 
more up to date billing and collections, as well as more easily obtained information from the 
program to be used for reporting purposes. All efforts will be made to make this as seamless as 
possible to the residents, but we ask that you bear with us if any glitches do occur. Ultimately, 
we feel the transition will correct some old errors and prevent new ones from occurring while 
enabling us to be more current with today's needs. 

Regretfully, David "Rabbitt" Haskell, a member of the Water and Sewer Commission for many, 
many years passed away in June 2006. We miss Rabbitt' s presence and contributions to the 
commission. 

We welcomed new member Ken Taylor. Ken is already taking classes and becoming licensed. 
He will be an asset to the commission. 

We would like to remind you to check for leaky faucets, toilets, outside sillcocks, etc. around 
your home. A small drip that is allowed to continue will increase your water usage more than 
you might imagine and your water bill will reflect that. It "pays" to take that few minutes to 
check on things. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Walter E. "Sam" Kellogg III 
Chairman

Annual Report of the Woodland Trails Committee 

The Williamsburg Woodland Trails Committee was established by the selectmen to work with interested public and 
private property owners to enhance trail opportunities in town. 

The Woodland Trails Committee has worked to establish awareness of the trail system existing in Williamsburg on 
both public and private land. The Committee strives to strengthen the coalition of all trail users ( including hikers, 
skiers, snowmobilers, ATV riders, bikers and equestrians ) interested in maintaining and improving Williamsburg's 
trails with respect for the individual landowners' rights regarding trail use on their land. 

This year the Committee hosted four hikes which attracted a large number of participants, including local families 
and hikers from neighboring towns. Members lead a winter hike to visit the 3 -Town granite boundary marker, then 
over Old Wolf Hill to the Big View trail lookout. In the late summer we held the Quiet Reflections Benefit Family 
Hike from the Turner Pavilion. Along the route hikers viewed the Meekins homestead site and Rena's Cave with 
commentary from local historian Ralmon Black, returning to the pavilion for bag lunch and description of the Angel 
Park Project by Donna Baldwin. In the fall we teamed up with the Trustees of Reservations naturalist for their 
Colors of Petticoat Hill hike, which included their introduction to Locke's Loop. This year for the first time, a New 
Year's Day hike was planned. 

Two workdays were scheduled for the Town owned Hall Conservation Area. An Earth Day workday was held 
where a newly mapped trail was opened and restoration of an old wildflower meadow begun. Footbridge 
construction and installation over the brook was completed on the fall workday. 

A Student Conservation Association application for local trail work was submitted but not approved for 2006. An 
application for 2007 will be submitted. 

Members attended and assisted an informative Learning in Retirement program held at Meekins Library on the 
history and natural features of the Petticoat Hill Reservation. A naturalist from the Trustees of Reservations led a 
hike following the talks. 

Members of the town's Open Space Committee presented their Five Town Initiative to the committee, a program to 
identify and protect important town natural resources and open space. 

Since Mass. Audubon acquired the O'Neil Hill property last year, we have been consulting with them and laying out 
trails to develop hiking trail linkages between the town's Hall Conservation Area and the Audubon properties. 

The Trails committee and selectmen have been working out an arrangement with Northampton administrators to 
provide hiking access to Henhawk Trail, which crosses Northampton watershed property. The agreement will be 
part of their recreation/management plan. 

Copies of the Woodland Trails brochure listing publicly accessible trails in town are available at the Town Clerk's 
office and Meekins Library. These trails may cross public and private property, so users must respect the trails, the 
property and each other. The Woodland Trails committee requests that all users follow these guidelines when using 
local trails. Please obey all posted trail use and property signs. Please respect all trail users. Hiking, skiing, biking, 
horseback riding, ATV riding, and snowmobiling are all important trail uses in Williamsburg. Please stay on the 
trails, be sensitive to natural and cultural resources, and remove trash if you find it and avoid environmentally 
sensitive areas. 

Visit our website www. WilliamsburgWoodlandTraiIs.org where you'll find our activities and trail maps posted.
